Each of the women portray one of the characters represented in the collection of twenty poems, revealing different issues that impact women in general and women of color in particular.
In the original play, the characters did not have names, and were known instead by the colors of their costumes: "Lady in Red", "Lady in Purple", "Lady in Blue", "Lady in Yellow", etc. Although the movie's characters do have names, both the movie and its advertising continue the color-theming of the characters.
